Very nice, KR.

I guess you use some kind of dolly to get it through your house?

I don't know what they're going to use. I'm curious myself. It weighs over 1100 pounds. I don't think a guy and a dolly would get it done.

Nice safe.

A few tips I have...

It took me, a dolly, and three buddies to get the safe inside my house and the door back on. We could have done it with 3 guys but 4 was better.

I don't have a dehumidifier, but every time I buy something with the desiccant packets (like tailgate chairs from Academy) I throw them in the safe. You'd be surprised how many you come across when you start saving them. Seems to work very well...

I have a friend with 3 of those big Browning safes, and I never think to ask him when I see him...

I would say it's damn near worth having someone else do it.

We just nutted up because my boy who had the dolly also has a tommy lift on his work truck. So we ended up picking up from the warehouse not just taking the curbside delivery.

I forget but I wanna say I saved about $200 doing it like that.

They're setting it in place for you? Every one I've seen that delivers says that they'll drop it off at your curb and it's up to you to get it in the house.

I'm building a new house this year, thinking of how I can get my current safe and a new safe
Welded into rebar to the foundation.


Try to carve out a small room in the new house, interior room and put the safe in there. It makes it nice to have a spot that is sage to keep all your gear in once place...

Love my Lincoln series, the wife was a bit put off by the expense initially but now that we have kids she ranks it among our best purchases.

Did you get the 25, 35, or 50?

I ultimately decided to go with the 50. I didn't want any regrets of thinking I should have got a bigger one.

re: My safe is in!!!
My wife talked me into the middle sized safe, she knew if I had too many empty spots I'd use it as an excuse to go gun shopping...

By time we got heirlooms, jewelry and whatnot in it i should have went larger.
